ship of state from Gov. Luren D. Dick-
insbn Jan. 1 will be a University

Vanf Wagoner, '21E.
Successful in pulling one of the
political surprises of the year by de-
feting Gov. Dickinson in the guber-
natorial elections this fall, Van Wag-
orikr will be the eighth University
alumnus among Michigan's 37 gov-
Known to all his numerous friends
as "Pat," the governor-elect entered<

Average Man
Saved $5.85
By Congress
Want to get rich quick? Well,
Congress, Independent Men's Asso-
ciation, has a scheme for you.
David Margold, '42E, chairman of
the Student Welfare Committee, yes-
terday released some interesting sta-
tistics. Citing the example of John
Q. Student, he estimated his laun-
dry, cleaning and pressing and shoe
repair bill for the remainder of the
Taking out for Christmas and
3pring vacations, there are approx-
mately 182 days left until the end
Af School dune 17-exactly 26 weeks.
John Q. Student, in this time
pends one dollar for cleaning every
two weeks, an average of one dollar
per week for laundry and about $1.50
for shoe repairing for the entire
school year. His total bill for these
Services amcunts ton$40.50-13 dol-
lars for cleaning and pressing, 26
lollars for laundry and $1.50 for shoe
But, Johnny was making a big
mistake. He could have saved $5.85-
pure profit-if he'd bought a Con-
gress discount card at Congress Of-
fice, Room 306 in the Union. He'd
have gotten 25 percent discount on
dollar cleaning, 10 percent on 59 cent
cleaning, 10 per cent on all laundry
and shoe repairing.
And then the picture would have
been different. Johnny would have
;pent $9.65 - not 13 dollars - for
,leaning and pressing, $23.40 instead
.f 26 dollars for laundry and $1.35
instead of $1.50 for shoe repairing.
His total bill would have been-not
340.50-but $34.40.
Take the. difference-$6.10-and
subtract 25 cents-the original cost cf
the discount card-and that leaves
$5.85 clear profit.
Discount cards will be on sale at
Congress Office in the Union for
25 cents each from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
for the remainder of this week and
next week.

Remember those grammar school
days when you and the rest of the
pen-knife artists used to carve your
initials in every desk top you had
the misfortune to have to occupy? The
teacher frowned on the activity, said
it was childish
Well, you can forget what the
teacher told you. Come over to the
Union Taproom any day and you have
the privilege of carving the table tops
to your heart's content. Not only will
the Union not frown on you, but
they're prepared to encourage your
wood-carving abilities with a set of
carving tools that any senior student
can obtain.

Underground activity on the Michi-
gan campus does not necessarily con-
note radical activities and mass meet-
ings. Most of the subterranean work
in Ann Arbor is being accomplished
in the Physics Building, an unpre-
possessing structure on East Univer-
sity with three underground stories
that make it one of the "tallest" build-
ings on campus.
According to Prof. Daniel L. Rich,
who served as an intermediary be-
tween the faculty and the contractors,
the building was constructed with an
eye towards economy and practic-
ability. Three hundred feet of good
builing igravel unelying the cam-

any of the underground rooms.
The gravel has served a dual pur-
pose, for it deadens all vibration and
assures a fairly constant temperature
in the structure. This . is necessary
for the graduate and research work in
physics which is undertaken here.
Another oddity in the design of this
building has been the sole use of the
outside walls and corridor walls to
support the floor slabs. No perma-
nent fixtures are on the interior walls
and they can be removed to make the
rooms larger or smaller. All of the
unusually large amount of electrical
conduits needed for the work carried
